About cultural and creative industries (CCIs)

Beyond their undoubted impact on social, democratic and cultural wealth, Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) are increasingly being acknowledged as industrial and economic assets. According to the former European Creative Industries Alliance, the CCIs represented in 2014 (latest figures known) around 3% of EU GDP and 6.7 million jobs with above average growth rates.

Unlocking their potential and increasing their collaboration with other sectors of the economy has become a factor of competitiveness for the European economy.

Join us for the discussion in Riga on how these assets could be used to the benefit of your region!
